Gulf senior Kianna Mills will play in Tuesday's Class 4A region semifinal against Wesley Chapel.
Any doubt about the Coppin State signee's status was erased after Mills visited a doctor Friday and learned she had an infection, according to Gulf coach Mike Quarto.
Mills, who scored 14 points in a 67-27 victory against Wiregrass Ranch on Thursday, said she felt "really bad" after the win.
Mills had collapsed earlier in the week, sending her to the hospital for a day and a half, Quarto said.
Mills is Gulf's leading rebounder and is second in scoring to Nicole Adams. She averages 10.2 points and 8.6 rebounds.
In the three previous games against Wesley Chapel she scored seven, nine and 15 points, respectively.
The Bucs and Wildcats will battle Tuesday for the fourth time for the right to advance to a Class 4A region final. Gulf has won the previous three, including the district title.
